"Think o( me, my boy, on Mount Itaioler, when (lie thermometer be fiins to sizzle." He had asked Dan to wlro him It Grand United took his play, sc ho would havo an opportunity I cclehrate. Only, Paul had not fald "if": he had 'said "when." • Dan began to think Hie studio' Silence \;as unreasonable, and onc or twice he had hall angrily bee: tempted to call, believing ilia Grand .United should te told tuer were other studios Ir Hollywcot to whom he might submit his play And then one day Phillips' secri tary called liim and asked him t come over to the office. She saiil, with a smile in her voice: "It's good news, Mr. Horimer, and I'm very glad." "That's mighty nice of you," he told her, feeling that the world suddenly had ' become a ranch brighter place. "I'll bo right oven" •• : . .Phillips welcomed him. with a broad smile and a hearty handclasp. "Think we were never decide, Rorimer? Well, it wasn't my fault—notady'a fault In particular: we've hcen sort of up in the air and things have to take their turn, you know." At any rate, 1m said, Grand United wanted to buy his play. "1 think it's pretty swell, SEO. wlut's inoro'important, so doea Mr. John >n. How much'do you want lor Dan gazed nt him rather hlnnkly, and Phillips laughed nnd told him not lo look EO flabborKasled. "Sit down. 1 Just asked yon how much you wanted for It, that's nil." 'I haven't thought about that nt all," Dan replied uncertainly. "All I could think nbout was whether It would suit you. How much Is it worth to you?" Phillips named rt figure. "In that satisfactory'.' I think it's very fair luoro than you'd Ret anywhere se, probably. It's pretty high con- di'rlns svhat wo pay for most rlglnal stories, hut I llko your ay and 1 think It's worth It." "That's said. perfectly satisfactory," ipOOD. I've been wanting to ^ talk lo you about It ever nco I read It, but I've been so usy llieso last two weeks that I've cen dizzy. Your play's got a wal op, all right. You know, tho nigh look it home to read It we had ompany. Unexpected. They idu't lenvo until midnight, and uf- er they'd gone I picked It up and ort of glanced at it, expecting to Inlsh It the next day. Know what lappcned? I read It right through, t's got a great kick! I guess my ecretarx told you I was'cnthusl- istic about It. Whcrc'u you get ho idea';" Dan told him. Phillips smiled. 'Well, now that, we'vo agreed on irice, I think wo ought to havo a iltle libation," he said, and he opened a little cabinet bcsWo his tcsk and brought out a bottle nnd two glasses. lie poured one. glais full, handed t to Uorimer, filled his own, lifted it to his lips, anil there ho paused, qulry ho confessed that ho had been wnltliig to bear that rery thing said, "1 had Mooro in mind when I wrote that treatment. 1 was lioiilng you'd tee It." Thcro wns a muted sound ou Phillips' desk, and ho picked up ho receiver anil spoke with bis sec- clary. I\Q rose, Ihen. "Ilc'fl hi, torhner; let's go." Mr. Jolmsou was very ngreeablo. le Bald, after slinking hands warm* y ami ottering Rorlmcr a chair: Tvo been Inquiring about you.

"Why (lid you leave? Mind my asking? Did-they fall to exercise their option?" Ilo added, smiling; You sec, I want to find out all about you." Dan iicsilaled. "It wasn't exact ly Hint," bo said. "Since you nak me, I'll havo to confess that 1 didn't get along very well will! Adamson over there, 1 thought he was Intolerable. I tore up my con tract nil He n whllo ago, nnd when they reorganized, Adamsou Ilrcd me." Ho grinned Ihen, recalling his last interview with Adamson. "Ho said 1 was dead timber," bo toll Mr. Johnson. Phillips uoililcil, nnd he suddenly [bought ot something. "Uy lh« way Itnrlmer, you (old mo It wo took your play you'd lell mo wlijr you wi'ro to keen to Bell It to Grand United." Ho Inuglied.

And when.he had set his'glass down he spoke through tho inter- offico phone to Ills secretary and asked her to find out If Mr. Johnson was busy. "Tho boss wants to see you," he told Rorimer. "Now that he'B sold, he's sold hard. He's been aaliiug a lot of questions about you nnd some of them I couldn't answ&r. You'll have to talk to him. Just between he two of us, he's pretty much ntercsted in you. It he makes ou any kind ot proposition 1 hope •ou'll think it over, Rorimer." nan Sodded and murmured sonic- hing. Everything, he reflected, camo In bunches. Not only had Grand United bought his play, but low Phillips talked as if they meant to offer him a joh. And ho thought of Paul Collier ..up In Seat tie. That would bo something to wire Paul, all right, it Johnson'was going to make him an offer. While they waited tor his secretary to report, Phillips confided that "Traitor" would make a great story for Lester Moore. "We've been looking for a story tor Moore, sod tint is made, to order." Dan could cot repress a jmile at thla. and at the other's look of In- Tho Grand United executive thought Hint was very funny, see. Well, wo might bo willlnc sometime lo tnko a chance on som dead timber. That's great dlalogu in that play ot yours; good, aulhen tic stuff. You wero a uew&papc man, weren't you?" "Yes, sir." "1 don't think you'd find us ver unreasonablo around here." John son siild. "Do you, Phillips?" And Phillips smiled. "Thcr aren't any Adamsons over here, he said. "1 know him, Rorimer. "Wo thought It would be n goo Idea," Mr. Johnson resumed, you did the scenario for us; we'd like to have you around t help out on It when proiluctlo OUR BOARDING HOUSE By Aherif- 1 \..-'v "~-i.\ ''• starts.

"And 1 know you've EOt to please your director and your actors, so 1 understand perfectly about the changes. 1'vo made plenty ot script changes right on the sets at Continental." Mr. Johnson looked ralher pleased. "Phillips will find an office for you to work in. I'm rather hoping you'll want to stay; I think we can use you. When you've finished the scenario, come iu and see mo. and we may have a contract to offer you." ' He rested a hand on the manuscript that lay before him on the dtsk.
